Abstract:

Characterizing the deepwater rice-growing environment under a global area of 9 million ha vis-à-vis improved rice production technology can considerably enhance production and productivity (Setter et al 1998). Two prime constituents of this production technology-improved varieties and crop management-appear to be major contributors to enhanced grain yield. Improved crop management practices are needed for improved varieties to realize their yield potential (Ghosh 2002).
